‘The participants enjoyed the real-time creation of an image of our collaborative work, and were empowered by seeing their thoughts reflected with such respect and care. Alison brought a new dimension, value, and connection to a fairly high-level workshop, and engaged us all in a meaningful way, as collaborators and audience.”

“Alison has helped Ecology North turn boring guidelines into fun and exciting products that have been well received across Northern Canada. Her style, professionalism, and ability to understand what is needed and turn that into amazing illustrations is unparalleled.”
-Craig Scott, Executive Director, Ecology North
"We were blown away by how effectively Alison was able to capture and synthesize all of the conversations that took place during our Forum. Having such attractive and interesting visual minutes makes it so much easier to demonstrate what was discussed to those who did not attend; it also makes it easier for participants to see their conversations reflected in the minutes.
We continue to constantly use our visual minutes more than a year after our event and yet we would have likely not have referenced a traditional set of minutes at all.
Alison’s work has made a big difference in continuing the momentum of our Forum after the fact. "
-Sara Brown, Chief Executive Officer, Northwest Territories Association of Communities
